Pink peony bouquet

How about breathtaking blooms and a romantic portrait sesh to kick Monday off? These snaps are by the talented Jen Huang from her most recent film workshop in Santa Barbara. Attendees also learned calligraphy from Paperfinger + floral design by Poppies & Posies, rounding out the wedding gorgeousness. The workshop also consisted of an intimate dinner + shoot at Butterfly Beach.

Was it a success, you ask? These photos kinda speak for themselves…

Bianca and AJ’s bridal shoot echoed the fun, bright colors present in the welcome dinner hosted by Jen and designed by Sierra of Poppies & Posies and Cassandra of Borrowed Blu. Sierra has a love for color. She paired beautiful bright blooms from Florabundance with beeswax outdoor candles and galvanized metal trays for a cozy but casual look. Cassandra pulled in the warmth with beautiful wooden plates, wood, copper silverware, and copper glassware. Bryn from Paperfinger brought in a beachy vibe with indigo and navy nametags and a foldout menu.

Calligraphy love sign

This garden wedding inspiration captured by Yasmin Sarai is too cute. With a palette of pastel pink, peach, coral, and pops of cotton candy blue, it’s flirty but sweet, and comes complete with tons of fun ideas like a cupcake decorating bar and a game station. Yes please.

Can we carry around My Wedding Sense in our pocket? These floral arrangements are fantastic.

Jessica of Hee Weddings and Events says, As soon as you step into Shelldance Orchid Gardens, you’ll be immediately captivated by the uniqueness of the greenhouse. The whole design was drawn out to complement the greenery and the diverse plants by incorporating delicate spring hues of peach, blush pink, and coral… Being a huge sweets fan, I couldn’t forget a dessert bar! The desserts were showcased on a vintage dresser and included delicious soft pink and creamy orange frosted cupcakes and gold-brushed macarons, which looked similar to the colors of sherbert ice cream, adding to the whimsy of the day.
